Crow Wing Power serves 37,000 electric cooperative members in a three county region in north central Minnesota. They are locally owned and operated and part of a group of 600 electric Touchstone Energy cooperatives throughout the nation.
The new SmartGateway system will allow Crow Wing Power to import essential information from a Cooper Yukon Load Control System and process it in the SCADA engine of the SmartGateway. The resulting data is automatically exported to a Landis + Gyr AMI Command Center using a standardized Multispeak 3.0 interface. This process replaces an old hardware platform, which had little flexibility in adapting the import/export process.
